The R&A has launched a new video series created for junior golfers to learn about the Rules of Golf and improve their enjoyment of the sport by understanding how to apply them on the course.
The ‘Rules Skool Open’ features ten episodes and each instalment follows the progress of featured player George Harper Jnr as he gets to grips with the Rules of Golf when faced with a number of different situations during the championship.
The first video is a highlight of The R&A’s Rules Week and you can find this on The R&A YouTube channel. It is also available to watch via RandA.org and the updated Rules of Golf App.
Grant Moir, Director – Rules at The R&A, said, “We have created an entertaining and light-hearted video series that introduces the Rules of Golf to a younger audience in a new and fun way which will help junior golfers learn the key Rules and how they are applied on the golf course.
“We know from research that most young people prefer to learn from watching videos and this series will support junior golfers in developing their understanding of the Rules, making them more confident out on the golf course and adding to their enjoyment of the sport.”
Viewers can test their knowledge of the Rules by answering quiz questions that accompany the videos via RandA.org and the Rules of Golf app.
The R&A is also collaborating with its affiliated national federations and other golf bodies to encourage junior golfers to watch the series. A digital pack which includes practical advice and resources for junior golf organisers is also provided via RandA.org, found at the Resource Centre in ‘The Junior Room’.
